About a year ago, he had to have surgery to remove a bladder stone. The surgery was a disaster - a vet student let him loose in the back and they ended up breaking his K9 tooth trying to capture him (although they would never admit it but when he went in his teeth were perfectly fine). The surgery took longer than it was supposed to (and cost several hundred more to extract the broken tooth) and they were never able to find the stone. $2K and a month later, Gizmo's health deteriorated fairly quickly. With medicine (antibiotics and pain medicine), lots of vet visits and speculation by different vets of what could be wrong with him, I made the decision to do what I could for him. This past week, he was very lethargic and in pain.
Rest in peace my sweet boy.
